High Quality Marks for St. Joseph Hospital, Redwood Memorial Hospital

Partnership Health Plan of California honors St. Joseph Hospital, Redwood Memorial Hospital for High Quality

Providence Redwood Memorial Hospital and Providence St. Joseph Hospital are excited to announce that they were recently recognized as top performing hospitals by Partnership Health Plan’s (PHC) Hospital Quality Improve Program (Hospital QIP). Redwood Memorial Hospital was one of just six hospitals among the 26 surveyed in Northern California to achieve a 100% score in all quality categories measured.

“This recognition is a testament to the quality, compassionate and dedicated care that is delivered daily by our caregivers and physicians at our hospitals in Humboldt County,” said Interim Associate Chief Medical Officer, James Goldberg, M.D. “Our patients are our friends, family members and neighbors. That’s why we make it our top priority to pursue excellence in service to their health and well-being. We’re exceptionally proud of this honor!”

The goal of the Hospital QIP is to improve the quality of care provided to PHC members. The measures hospitals report on are selected and designed in collaboration with hospital partners and represent the following domains: readmissions, advance care planning, clinical quality, patient safety, and operations and efficiency.

“Partnership is pleased to acknowledge the standout performance of these hospitals in achieving top quality scores,” Partnership CEO Sonja Bjork said. “These hospitals are crucial to the health and well-being of not only our Medi-Cal members but also our communities. We are grateful for their hard work and commitment to excellence.”

PHP provides quality health care to over 660,000 Medi-Cal recipients across 14 Northern California counties.
